Despite the hot action right out front from me (bay bridge area) I decided to make a trip to Solomons for a change of scenery. I picked up my buddy gw204 on the way down and had my son with me. It was a very slow day. We landed only 4 fish with the largest going 35". I wasnt getting the bait marks that I got in the bridge area and it was just hard to find any kind of regular action. We landed a 34 and a 35 in the afternoon two passes of one area but it died after that and couldnt find the bite again. I hope to fish at home on Monday.

Despite that It was a cold day outside (21 degrees when we left the dock), I had the enclosure up and heater going. It got almost too toasty in the wheel house :pp Despite the slow action it was a Nice day, comfortable day on the water with my friend and son.

Two fish in the morning were deep on white. One tandem and one umbrella. Fish were smaller too one was probably 22" or so and the other a not much over 30".

The afternoon fish were on the surface with solo light chutes out 220 and 250. One on white and one on green.

We ran a 9 rod spread all off the boat.

I fished on the Goldfisch with Capt. Dave Fischer. We were at the HS bouy. We got our limit of 5 overs and two unders. All but one were caught on Tandems on the board lines. One under was caught on a deep umbrella rig off a boat rod. White was the hot color.

The biggest fish was 40", 26 pound. The rest of the overs were between 35" and 39".

Saturday was a beautiful day in Solomons.

B- faithful, That is a great boat to fish from in 20 degrees or 80 degrees. If all you wanted was fish..........the cost of your boat would have bought a ton of fish:clap::clap: Glad you had a great day with your Son and friend..............at a new venue!.........Gary

Nice work md. Sounlds like the boards were hot from the talk on the radio too. I am just too lazy to pull boards and sold mine a year and half ago. I may pull them again in the spring when I have crews to help. I think with the very cold water that the fish are coming to the surface at the height of the day to sun themselves to warm up. I found them high earlier in the week when all but one fish came on my shallow rods.

Crabby, I think I now have the PERFECT boat for fishing the Chesapeake Bay. We were very comfortable.

We were just south of you between 68 and 72 manage only 1 37" fish on white off the boards.
We were fishing in the Atlantice Volunteer fire department tournament, and first place was 52.9# second place was 48# so there were some big fish out there, I think on the tangier side on eels.


rumour has it some guys manage a upper 50#'s at the cbbt yesterday that they were checking in today.
